WHAT THE HEART KNOWS SLEEP MEDITATION SCRIPT
What the Heart Knows
Breathe deep and sink into yourself,
See what your heart has to say.
Close your eyes and wait for the message,
For the wisdom you might not expect.
We don’t always give the heart credit
For knowing as much as it does.
We’re told that’s where the irrational stuff sits,
The emotions that take us by storm.
But why do we fear the feelings?
Why do we work to avoid their grasp?
What if they just appear over the top
Because we’re trying too hard to play it cool?
Strong emotions are not unfounded,
Not senseless or groundless or dumb.
In fact, they are likely the clearest clues
To the choices we most need to make.
We’re taught that our head is the place to go,
Whenever we’re feeling in doubt.
List the pros and the cons, we’re often told,
As if wisdom requires neat lines and charts.
But the head is so full of the world’s noise,
So polluted and overstuffed.
It’s hard to sort out what’s real and what’s not,
Which can make the final result such a mess.
By contrast, the heart is inherently pure,
At least it is when we get out of its way.
It will tell us the truth, even when it’s hard to hear,
And it knows when we’re leading it astray.
The heart isn’t only for matters of love,
Though that is a true specialty.
But we love many things in this life of ours,
So its reach is much longer than it appears.
You can consult with your heart about anything,
For it will rarely steer you wrong.
And when it does get confused, your gut keeps it in check,
As it steps in to make the path clear.
Breathe deep once again and listen well,
Hear whatever your heart wants to tell you.
Sometimes the messages are hard to hear,
But they can save you from pain in the end.
Though the mind has its place in many things,
And it’s always worth examining your logic,
The heart is so much better at making the call,
When truth is at stake above all.
It’s important to trust all the voices within,
Since they tend to work as a team.
But never write off the heart as foolish or fickle
Without taking time to find out what it knows.
